    TMS coming to Cardiff and a place near you...

    In TV, the advert states that they are opening up a few new stores across the country, one of them in Cardiff, niccceee. Lets hope the quality is just as good as the original site.

    I'm sure i've read somewhere that this isn't quite what you think.

    I'm sure this it, TMS are giving authorization for certain Vauxhall Dealers to fit there products.

    Not a new workshop like the one in Milton Keynes like your hoping.

    TMS world domination

    It will be interesting to see what products will be on offer and how the warrenty will be affected?

    I wonder where this leaves VXR performance centre? It seems there are a couple of 'recognised' tuners by vauxhall...

    My understanding which is not 100% on this, is that a number of vauxhall garages throughout the uk will be authorised to fit a limited number of TMS upgrades. Warranty is not affected and any problems you go back to the fitter who may or may not send it back to TMS if required.

    TMS have their own 3year warranty programme, so any car thats still under manufacturers warranty, should something go wrong, it will get sorted out between the TMS & Vauxhall warranty.
    Its basically VX dealers taking on a TMS franchise to sell their parts. TMS train the specific dealers techs as part of that.
